Day 20: Water Marble... wow. this was a terrible mess! i almost did a dry marble, just because i knew how much cleaner that would have been. but i wanted to stay true to the challenge and do a water marble. keep reading to see why i hate water marbles.
okay, last time i did water marble i didn't tape up my fingers. this time i did, and i was hopeful that it would come out better!
all taped up, tape, cup, polishes ready to go!
pour the polish in the cup, room temp water, i did swirl these, just forgot to take a pic.
time it takes to dip fingers in water: less than a minute. time it takes to clean it up... lost track.
What I used: Barry M Turquoise, Kleancolors pastel pink, Essence Mellow yellow
the biggest problem was the water causing bubbles on my nails.
it did that to my thumb so badly it never dried properly and i had to take
it off and just paint some stripes of the colors on there...
i like how the index finger shows a purple color, but i didn't have any purple in the cup... pink + blue = purple. not my plan, but okay.
re is no rhyme, reason, order, safe zone, or boundaries to water marbles, everything just goes everywhere and does whatever it wants. that is not my style. i like clean lines. i like crispness!
have you tried a water marble? was it a failure or a success?
